UK's tourist arrivals increase

The number of visitors to the UK rose to 3.5 million in June, up seven per cent from the similar month last year.
     
The number of visitors from North America shot up by 34 per cent.
    
The Office for National Statistics said, while in the UK, the visitors spent £2.2 billion, a rise of two per cent. 
     
The increase comes as the weak pound makes the UK more affordable for visitors, but also follows terror attacks in London and Manchester.
